Phil Knight Removes Paterno’s Name From Facility

The name of Joe Paterno's been removed from the Child Care Center at Nike.  Company officials announced the decision in the wake of a report concluding that the late Penn State Coach helped cover up sex abuse.  A statement from chairman and co-founder Phil Knight says, it appears that Joe Paterno made some mis-steps, and says Knight, “I missed that Joe missed it. I’m extremely saddened, my love for Joe and his family remains.”  Company President Mark Parker says with the new findings, he has decided to remove Paterno's name from the child care center, and his thoughts are with the victims and the Penn State community.
